I have finally figured out that I need a FIREWIRE to get the quality that I want in creating a DVD thanks to this site! However, my Dell does not have one, so I am looking to purchase a card as described in other postings. I see "400" and "800" versions - which is better? I have a Sony Camcorder (mini tape version). Does the camcorder dictate what kind of card and firewire that I buy or is it universal? Seems like Sony has particular equiptment that is unique to the brand. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you!
